Alabama head football coach Nick Saban said his No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide team came from behind to beat the LSU Tigers after following the example set by the elite Navy SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden. Saban’s wartime comparison came as National Geographic broadcast a movie about the bin Laden raid Sunday night, right before the presidential election.

McCarron has Heisman-like moment for No. 1 Alabama

(Eds: Updates with details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer At Alabama, it will go down as a crimson version of ''The Drive.''

Yeldon, Manziel top SEC Honor Roll

With cameras focused on AJ McCarron sobbing uncontrollably on the sidelines, someone tuning in with one minute remaining in the Alabama-LSU classic would have presumed it all slipped away, a perfect season evaporating in a riotous sea of purple and gold. TV cameras did after all show the Crimson Tide were in Tiger Stadium, where, according to LSU coach Les Miles, opponents'...

Alabama-LSU lives up to the hype this time

BATON ROUGE, LA No one could call this one boring. That, of course, was the knock on the last two meetings between Alabama and LSU, the first being settled solely on the feet of the field goal kickers and the second, the BCS Championship Game, being another defensive slugfest that put many on the east coast asleep before halftime. Not this one. Unlike the other two, this year...

Les Miles Calls Ill-Advised LSU Failed Fake Field Goal Which Alabama Stops For Two-Yard Loss (Video)

In a game where scoring is at a premium, it probably wasn't wise to call a play destined for failure while leaving three points on the field. Down 7-3 and facing fourth and 12 at Alabama's 30-yard line, Les Miles called a fake field goal, which Alabama read perfectly. The Crimson Tide stopped the play for a two-yard loss. LSU wouldn't score for the rest...

Bobby Hebert got kicked out of LSU's press box this weekend for cheering

Alabama defeated LSU in the third or fourth Game of the Century between the two schools with a late touchdown drive to win 21-17 in Baton Rouge.  But AJ McCarron's touchdown drive, pictures of him crying, the failure of Les Miles' magic tricks, or even Lolo Jones' College GameDay appearance weren't the most interesting story to emerge from the game. That title...

Heisman Weekend Wrap Up

As I was returning from the Coliseum where I’d just Kenjon Barner vault himself into the Heisman conversation I peaked into a bar to watch the last drive for Alabama against LSU. AJ McCarron looked amazing and watching that game winning drive made me think the Heisman race had been shaken up. Barner tore up [...]

Discover Fan Loyalty Poll: Fans Top Teams Should Correlate More With Latest BCS Projections

The Alabama Crimson Tide have held onto the top spot on the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll since the beginning of the 2012 college football season. After a late rally against the LSU Tigers to help the Tide remain unbeaten, that is unlikely to change next week. But that is not to say that there will not be a shake up in both the fans’ voting as well as the latest BCS projections before...

Alabama remains unbeaten

The Alabama Crimson Tide won their best game of the season, and the best game of the season they will play in until the BCS championship game, Saturday night in Death Valley. It wasn’t pretty for the Tide though. They started slowly in the first half but gained a 14 – 3 lead over the Tigers that they took into half-time. It was the Tigers that came out after half and proved to...
